Show & Tell: Emily Skaer from Uncorked Studios

Posted on Nov 14th, 2016 by Kate Bingaman-Burt


Please join us this Thursday for the final Show & Tell of the term!

As a motion designer Emily came to Uncorked as a freelancer, until she was captured and made a nice little nest in the design department. Prior to joining the team Emily spent her time at a variety of studios in Portland, full-time as well as freelance.

Hailing from Michigan, she earned her Bachelor’s of Fine Arts from the University of Michigan and originally thought she would be a paper craft artist. Or ceramics.

Outside the studio Emily loves going to storytelling events, running, biking, gardening and doing all the dares.

Sell your work at GOOD MARKET!

Posted on Nov 14th, 2016 by Kate Bingaman-Burt



We want to sell your work for you! GOOD Market is a pop-up shop featuring one of a kind goods from Portland State Art+Design students. We’re back for the holidays at Land Gallery from December 2nd through the 4th, 10am-7pm. It is only $5 to participate and you keep all the profits that you make. Applications are due November 12th, apply today!

Apply here:

Who can sell their work?

GOOD Market is open to any PSU A+D student! As long as you apply and meet all deadlines, you can sell.

** Please note, due to limited space each seller will be limited to 5 pieces each (multiples/prints of each piece are highly encouraged). If you’re concerned about the size of your piece(s), please verify with us.

What do I make?

Anything! Cards, wrapping paper, pins, gifts, socks, soap, leather goods, whatever you like to make. Keep in mind that you can’t always turn a school project into a marketable good without a bunch of editing, but we love to see projects and illustrations turned into art prints or cards.

How do I price my work?

Things vary. For most things people usually stay under $25, cards are around $6, but handmade goods are up to interpretation! A good place to start is to look at sites like etsy or to think about what similar hand made goods would cost out in the world.

Can I volunteer to help with GOOD Market?

YES! And yes please! If you are selling in GOOD Market we encourage you to volunteer. If you aren’t selling and just want to hang out at LAND we would love to have you too! We need a few volunteers to assist us with setting up the night before, tearing down the last night of, and manning shifts during the weekend. Please sign up here!

How do I apply and what is the deadline?

Complete the Google form here:

The deadline for application is Saturday, November 12th, and there is a $5 fee for participants. All sellers must pay a $5 fee, which goes towards display and materials for GOOD Market. Bring your goods and $5 in an envelope with your name and email written on the back to the Packaging Party on Friday, November 18th between noon and 2:00 pm in Room 330.

If you are not able to make this time, you can submit to Lena, Amanda, or Gabi on November 15th or 17th between 2:00 and 5:00 in room 330 with everything pre-packaged and ready to go, including vendor tags and inventory sheets.

What is a Packaging Party?

The packaging party is on Friday, November 18th between noon and 2:00 pm in Room 330. Your GOOD Market committee will have inventory forms and individual vendor tags. We will not have cello bags or any containers for your work, but we will have snacks!

What do I use to package my work?

In the past students have had success with cellophane bags. You can find them in art stores, craft stores (like Columbia Art Supply who is currently have a sale on them!), or on Amazon! Sharing with a friend is a great option, they’re often sold in bulk. You’re welcome to not use cellophane bags, but packaging is required. Keep in mind that we have to have somewhere secure to put the vendor tag, no tape or staples.

In order for your application to be considered complete, we must have received your completed answers to the Google form by November 18th and your $5 application fee/goods by November 18th.  We will not allow people to drop off goods at Land on the day of the event.

Questions? Concerns? Email Lena at

Please download the Inventory Form and the Vendor Tags for your work.

Here are some examples of student work that are great ideas for products for GOOD Market.
